Perfect stop after visiting The Agora

We stopped here for a rest and a drink after visiting The Acropolis and then The Agora. The seats on the pavement have a good view of the Agora and have umbrellas for shade in the hot summer sun. We only had drinks here but it was a plesant interlude in a busy day. Prices were reasonable and... read more

We went there because of the very good location, in front of the Ancient Roman Agora near the Acropoles, in Plaka.

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime, it was very busy but we managed to find a table. The staff were lovely and took our order, our starter arrived and within 2 minutes so did our main course! They struggled to get it all on the table. We finished our starter but by then our main course of pizza and... More

When you find a good place to eat you stick with it and on this street you have a big selection. The service is very polite and fast and the food great quality. The view of the Acropolis is great House red wine is good and Tzatziki is excellent with pita bread Plus it does not close at 17.00 !

In the neighbourhood there are plenty of restaurants. We choose this one and did not regret it. Friendly and quick service, free wifi, tasty oven baked pizza. Perfect choice for lunch after having explored the ancient Agora which is just across the street and wich you can see from the restaurant's terrace.

I asked the guy working for the restaurant if they had any vegan options, he showed me a couple of meals I could have, it was very tasty and filling so I can't complain, quick friendly service, decent price of 12 euros for 1 main and 2 sides.

As you descend from time atop the Acropolis, Antica restaurant is an easy stop on the way back to town. It has tables outside, which, as the sun dipped early on a bright but fresh March day, were warmed by portable heaters. The waiters were only too happy to accommodate those who wished to stick it out with a view... More

I kept returning to this restaurant because is was a short distance from my hotel, the food was good to excellent, but most importantly the wait staff made me feel like I was part of the family.
